Trump administration plans religious liberty executive action

by Sarah Westwood |
Image result for trump signing EOsPresident Trump will sign an executive action on Thursday aimed at removing regulations that apply to religious organizations, a senior administration official said on Wednesday.  “It declares that it is a policy of the administration … to protect and vigorously promote religious liberty,” the senior administration official said. “It directs the IRS to exercise the maximum enforcement discretion to alleviate the burden of the Johnson Amendment.”
The Johnson Amendment is a provision of the tax code that prevents nonprofit organizations, including churches and religious groups, from backing political candidates.  Trump has said he wants to repeal the Johnson Amendment to give religious organizations more free speech rights. His executive action on Thursday is also expected to offer “regulatory relief for religious objecters” to provisions of Obamacare, the official said.  Critics have questioned whether policies aimed at religious freedom could lead to discrimination against the gay community by giving non-religious businesses legal cover to withhold services from gay patrons.
But proponents have argued Obama-era laws discriminated against Christians by forcing them to participate in activities that violated their beliefs, such as providing wedding services for same-sex couples or buying health insurance plans that fund contraceptives.  “This EO isn’t about discrimination,” the senior administration official said. “We don’t have any plans to discriminate. We’re about not discriminating against religious organizations.”

IT’sTIME FOR McCONNELL TO GO!

It’s Time For McConnell To Go
By DICK MORRIS
Published on DickMorris.com on May 3, 2017

There is no greater act of deceit and chicanery than when Republican Senators like Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Roy Blunt of Missouri, and Susan Collins of Maine claim, on the one hand, to be strong opponents of abortion, determined advocates of less spending, and strong opponents of ObamaCare, but, on the other, defenders of the filibuster rule that makes sure these policies will never pass the Senate.

The 60-vote threshold for ending debate in the Senate will block immigration enforcement, tax cuts, Obamacare repeal, and every other Republican bill.

But Majority Leader McConnell zealously defends the filibuster saying that it keeps the Senate as the deliberative branch of Congress.  He essentially maintains that it is nobody’s business if it remains in place blocking all legislation. “Senate rules are a matter for the Senate and a lot of other people have opinions.”

If McConnell won’t get out of the way, it is time to get rid of McConnell as majority leader.  This one man cannot be allowed to stand in the way of the desires of the entire Republican electorate and the Republican president simply because he wants to maintain the Senate’s traditions.

Message to McConnell: It’s an elected Senate, not the House of Lords.

Attorneys for the Democratic National Committee defended their party from accusations of fraud late last month in a Fort Lauderdale courtroom.
Bernie Sanders supporters are suing on behalf of a potentially immense class of donors and party members, and claim that the DNC charter requires the chairman to “exercise impartiality and evenhandedness as between the presidential candidates and campaigns.”
The plaintiffs accuse former Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz of failing in this by rigging the contest for Hillary Clinton. In sabotaging Sanders in the primaries, they say, the DNC and its leader defrauded Sanders’ donors and violated a fiduciary duty to them and to all registered members of the Democratic Party.
The DNC’s rebuttal to these allegations is revealing, coming as Democrats try to rebuild after 2016 with a semblance of unity. Both the new DNC chairman, Tom Perez, and the “unity reform commission” working on changes to the presidential primary process, are trying to restore confidence to the party’s left wing that it will be treated evenhandedly in future.
But nobody shared the memo on this with the DNC’s lawyers. According to a court transcription, DNC attorney Bruce Spiva responded to the allegations in this lawsuit by arguing that party rules are voluntary guidelines, not legally binding, and that party officials could just as easily choose their nominee in a smoke-filled room.

JIM DeMINT REMOVED AS PRESIDENT OF HERITAGE FOUNDATION – THE HIGHLANDS TEA PARTY WILL DROP SUPPORT TILL DEMINT IS REINSTALLED

Senate Conservatives Fund

Displaying Fellow Conservative:

Our founder, former Senator Jim DeMint, was removed as president of The Heritage Foundation yesterday. We believe this decision was a mistake and we’re proud to stand with conservatives across the country in supporting Jim DeMint.

Jim DeMint has been one of the most trusted voices in the conservative movement and he helped lay the political groundwork that enabled Donald Trump to defeat Hillary Clinton last year.

When news broke last week that DeMint was being pushed out, President Trump was quick to praise him, citing his “amazing” work in winning the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.

Likewise, over 40 conservative members of the House and Senate signed a letter this week applauding DeMint for being a “leading advocate for America at its best.” You can read their letter here and read more about DeMint’s record at Heritage here.

Jim DeMint was pushed out by a small group of insiders who put their own ambition above the interests of conservatives. They succeeded with the help of DeMint’s predecessor, Ed Feulner, who has close ties to the GOP establishment and even endorsed Mitch McConnell over conservative Matt Bevin in the 2014 Senate primary.

We want the best for Heritage. There are many principled analysts and staff who work there and we hope the organization remains an effective voice for conservative ideas for years to come.

But we stand firmly with Jim DeMint and hope you will too. We thank him for his service and look forward to watching him find new ways to advance the principles of freedom that make this country great.

Sincerely,

Ken Cuccinelli II
President

Sean Hannity, Premiere Networks radio host and Fox News Channel talk show host, will be the recipient of the 2017 TALKERS Freedom of Speech Award.
The award, officially called The Gene Burns Memorial Award for Freedom of Speech, is the “longest-running and most prestigious honor” given each year to someone in the broadcast community, according to TALKERS.com.   The site announced Monday that Hannity would receive the award in New York City on June 2.
TALKERS publisher Michael Harrison said the award was “a non-partisan honor presented to a person in the industry who sets a meaningful example of the First Amendment in action, either by having taken a high-profile, risky stand on a controversial issue or working on an exceptional level to make that opportunity available to others.”

FREEDOM LOVING AMERICANS BEWARE OF THE DESTROYING FORCE THAT CALLS THEMSELVES “INDIVISIBLE” THEY ARE OUT TO DESTROY OUR NATION!!

Latest Edition          5/3/17 

“Indivisibles” uses chaos to destroy America

Trump derangement syndrome has become a full-fledged epidemic in America. So widespread is this malady of the mind and soul that it has produced a national movement dedicated to destroying Donald Trump’s presidency, making him incapable of working with Congress to do what is essential to serve and protect the American people.  

   Calling themselves the “Indivisibles” this group of irrational liberals, traumatized by Trump’s victory last November, is said to number more than 100,000 organized into community-based units across America.

   Leah Greenberg and Ezra Levin, two former Democrat Congressional staffers crushed by Hillary Clinton’s loss, are the co-founders of the Indivisibles. With a lot of help from big donors to Democrats, they’ve launched an all-out resistance to the Trump agenda that will not end until the federal government ceases to function, Trump is forced to resign, and by some devious and unlawful strategy he’s replaced by Hillary Clinton or some other enemy of the American people, maybe even by the return of Obama himself as permanent dictator.

The Independent Sentinel website reports that “The Indivisibles touts itself as a grassroots organization  funded by average Americans sending in small donations. They are the ‘loons’ who show up at Republican town halls to damage the congressman speaking and to keep him from getting a single point across.”


However the Indivisibles is anything but a “grassroots” movement. Recently, Breitbart News extensively reported that Indivisibles’ leaders are openly associating with groups financed by billionaire George Soros. The Need To Know (NTK) Network says it has an exclusive video showing George Soros, a radical international socialist, meeting with the Indivisibles, possibly to lend the group financial and operational support.


Also reported to be working with the Indivisibles is Barack Obama’s community-focused Organizing for Action group. The Soros-funded MoveOn.org and Open Society foundations together with Obama’s  “organizing” effort, are said to be “one big happy family and they are not “grassroots.” They’ve been labeled lavishly-funded “community organizing Marxists” who want you to think they are a benign, of-the-people force for American progress. 

The Indivisibles has powerful partners in destabilizing America. On April 24th The Washington Times reported that “Obama envisions an army of community organizers to fix American politics….He wants to inspire a new movement of civic engagement among the country’s youth, including more community organizers like himself.” This appears to be the exact mission of his Organizing for Action. Partnered with George Soros’ Open Society foundations, Obama appears to be marking every community in the nation for some sort of aggressive protest designed to destabilize populations and make them act out irresponsibly against the government.

Another group specializing in raucous political demonstrations is The Center for American Progress Action Fund, the advocacy arm of an organization founded by Hillary Clinton’s former campaign manager, John Podesta. The Washington Free Beacon notes that Podesta’s group has now joined with  another protest group, the Town Hall Project, to destroy interaction with the public at upcoming Trump rallies and congressional town-hall meetings.


The Indivisibles, and their unscrupulous allies are determined to “goose-step” their way into neighborhoods all across America, yours included, to make war on everyone who voted for Donald Trump. They’re committed to drowning the nation in mob violence to force a coup that will put our government into the hands of a socialist usurper who will be America’s unelected dictator.  

Resist the urge to fight. Any attempt to physically confront the Indivisibles and their partners in chaos will end badly. Clashes should be strictly avoided. They are exactly what these unhinged anarchists are hoping for. Also violent confrontations will quickly lead us to America’s Second Civil War, the event that those suffering from Trump derangement syndrome believe will open the door to a glorious socialist utopia.

Instead, our response to the Indivisibles and their kind should be to build public awareness of the menace they pose to our nation and to the Constitution that gave it life. We must convince our elected representatives that they need to legislate against all forms of mob rule, and add to the power of law enforcement agencies to stamp it out wherever it happens. 


Also prayer will be a big help. Ask God to cure the minds and change the hearts of these angry, hate-filled individuals, and instill in them a desire to cooperate with all Americans to keep our nation safe, strong and united for all times
